Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, oh my soul! While I live I will praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man [human beings] in whom there is no help.
His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
Happy is he who hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose help is in the Lord his God! Which made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that therein is; which keepeth truth forever! Which executeth judgement for the oppressed, which giveth food to the hungry.
The Lord looseth the prisoners!
The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind!
The Lord raiseth them that are bowed down; the Lord loveth the righteous; the Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and the widow.
But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
The Lord shall reign forever! Even thy God, O Zion! Unto all generations!
Praise ye the Lord!
